Every morning when I workout at the gym on base, the guys are always talking about this "Spartan Race." Hey Jess, you gonna do the Spartan Race? My first reaction is they lost me at spartan. I now officially have an excuse though, because I'm going to be attending a wedding out-of-state that day.
In all honesty, if I was half as fit as the people that did this sort of thing, I'd be all over it. Low crawling through the mud under barbed wire? Yes, please. Some of the obstacles might give me unpleasant flashbacks from basic training, but I've always enjoyed taking myself out of my comfort zone every once in awhile.
If you're in Denver or in Colorado Springs, it's over at Fort Carson on May 5th.
